Chocolate Elvis Muffins

Standard

I don’t know if it’s somewhere a written law, but when you use a banana and peanut butter in a baking recipe, you have to name it ‘Elvis’. So here’s my own first Elvis recipe. As being an Belgian, I had to add some chocolate.

Usually when I go to a potluck, I’ll bake something. Last time I took this cake. Like I needed a reason to try out ‘Cheers to Vegan Sweets‘:

I suppose I don’t have to present Yotam Ottolenghi anymore. In Belgium his cookbooks has a lot of fans. The books contain some vegan recipes or/and recipes you can easily veganize:

Although I want to mention that the first pictures shows ‘Carousing Cucumber Rounds with Rummy Hummus’ from The Tipsy Vegan. You have to admit, I just had to mention food with such a name.
